The Macau Ricci Institute visited the Macau Museum of Art

A group of seven from the Macau Ricci Institute visited the Macau Museum of Art at 3 pm on the 12th of this month to introduce the research work being carried out by the Institute. The two sides also exchanged views on the long-term cooperative relationship between the Institute and the Macau Museum of Art.

Fr. Stephan Rothlin, director of the Macau Ricci Institute, was warmly received by Dr. Chan Kai Chon, director of the Macau Museum of Art and Fr. Rothlin thanked the Macau Museum of Art for its long-term support. Director Dr. Chan introduced “Beyond the Scenery: Exhibition Commemorating the 300th Anniversary of the Passing of Wu Li”, which will be opened in September and invited the Institute to co-organize a special forum on Wu Li. In addition, Fr. Rothlin also introduced to Dr. Chan the two famous scholars of the Italian painter Giuseppe Castiglione, Prof. Francesco Vossilla and Prof. Alessandro Andreini, to explore the possibility of holding a painting and calligraphy exhibition of Giuseppe Castiglione in the future. Dr. Chan said that Giuseppe Castiglione came to China as a missionary during the Qing Dynasty and later became a royal painter. He not only left a lot of precious paintings for later generations, but also contributed to a certain degree of cultural exchange between China and the West. The exhibition can help the people of Macau to understand the story of Giuseppe Castiglione.

Dr. Chan also praised the research work and contribution of the Macau Ricci Institute for promoting cultural exchanges between China and the West. Also attending the visit were Vice-director Fr. Jarosław Duraj, administrator Ms. Anna Cheang and Project Manager Mr. Allen Lao.
